Juz 20
And We sent to Thamood their brother Salih: 'Serve you God!' And behold, they were two parties, that were disputing one with another. (45) 'My nation' he said, 'why do you wish to hasten evil rather than good? Why do you not ask the forgiveness of Allah, in order that you find mercy' (46) They said: 'We predict an evil omen from you and those who are with you' He replied: 'Your prediction is with Allah, you are a nation being tested' (47) And there were in the city nine persons who made mischief in the land and reformed not. (48) They said: Swear one to another by Allah that we verily will attack him and his household by night, and afterward we will surely say unto his friend: We witnessed not the destruction of his household. And lo! we are truthtellers. (49) And they devised a scheme and, without their knowledge, We devised a scheme. (50) Behold, then, what all their scheming came to in the end: We utterly destroyed them and their people, all of them; (51) So these are their houses fallen flat, the recompense of their injustice; indeed in this is a sign for people who know. (52) And We delivered those who believed and were wont to fear. (53) (Remember) Lot, when he said to his people: "Why do you indulge in obscenities when you know (it is evil)? (54) Must you really approach men with lust instead of women? Nay, but you are people without any awareness (of right and wrong)!" (55) ۞ There was no other answer given by his people except that they said: "Drive out the family of Lout (Lot) from your city. Verily, these are men who want to be clean and pure!" (56) So We delivered him and his family, except his wife: We ordained her to be one of those who stayed behind, (57) We sent to them a terrible rainstorm. How horrible was the rain for the people who had already received warning. (58)
